One Day Workshop: Essential grounding and debriefing skills for front line staff

The pace, content and competing demands of the modern workplace has left many of us operating in constant stress and overdrive. Frequently this elevated stress state is challenged further with added pressures and trauma exposure. Eventually we can find ourselves shutting down and numbing out because our bodies are not built to function in this high-energy state for extended periods of time. As a result, we see many negative physical, emotional, behavioural and relational consequences in the workplace.

WTF stands for “Window of Tolerance Framework”. This one-day training provides skills to move helping professionals out of states of reactivity or avoidance and into the place of possibility where we are centered amongst the chaos and can choose how we wish to respond. It is ideally suited for front- line workers and others working with forensic evidence, investigations, court, with witnesses and victims and those working with individuals who have experienced difficult and traumatic experiences.

Please note: This training is only delivered by Diana Tikasz, MSW., RSW.

Cost: Please contact us at for a detailed quote. Pricing is dependent on the size of your team as well as choice of trainer.

Note: This course is also now available for individual use as an online course or as a customized blended learning experience for teams.
